About Coral Snakes

Existing in 11 "old-world" and over 65 "new-world" species, coral snakes are a large family of venomous snakes found in tropical and sub-tropical regions around the world. All coral snakes have a similar striped pattern, including stripes of red, yellow/white, and black. In North America, folk rhymes have have developed regarding the pattern of the colored stripes to tell the highly-venomous coral snakes from non-venomous mimics, including "red on yellow, kill a on black, friend of Jack".

Coral snakes feed on smaller snakes, birds, rodents, lizards, and frogs. Some coral snakes are entirely aquatic, while others exist in the ground clutter of rainforests. "New-world" coral snake produce some of the most potent venom of any Western Hemisphere snake, and are considered potentially dangerous to humans.
